Elemental Layout

The Elemental Workshop on the Go was fun to do. So fun, I am having a repeat workshop today :) Here is the main layout form the guide and one of 3 layouts we will be doing today

Thanks to the Cricut and Art Philosophy, I was able to add some uniquely shaped patterns with my B&T adding "something to talk about" on the page. Love this kit!!! Contact me if you would like one for yourself.

Elemental Pillow Box

I was playing some more with the "Elemental" paper pack from Close To My Heart. I so love it! You can dress it up or dress is down. I have created beautiful scrapbook layouts, handmade cards, door hangers (filled with goodies for teachers), and these pillow boxes which are now in my Etsy shop.

These were created with the help of the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge......thanks, little bug!

Paper Goodies To Start The School Year Right!

On the first day of school, my teacher friends will find one of these hanging from their classroom door. I just wanted to welcome the brand new school year with something special. A little card with a special thought, a piece of chocolate (to help survive the first days),and maybe a little bottle of hand sanitizer..LOL....whatever treats they will find, I hope, will make their first days warm and cheerful.

"Mischief" Card Fun

Yesterday I posted a "sneak peak" of this card I created. The design idea is a combination of "All Stacked Up" from CTMH's "Wishes" book and the mix of papers is from an idea posted by Aaron Brown as she demonstrated how to use the new Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge exclusive to CTMH.

The card is one that was made using this cartridge when selecting the "ticket" shaped image and selecting the "card" function. I set the machine at 5 3/4" when cutting this card out.

The patterned paper was from the new "Mischief" paper pack that is in the Autumn/Winter 2011 catalog. (Contact me if you would like your very own copy)
I cut this piece at 2 1/2" using the same "ticket" shaped image but this time without the card feature activated. Using the same image and sized cut, cut a piece of colonial white cardstock to put inside the card.

The 3 squares are colonial white cardstock cut at 1 1/2" and sponged with sunset ink.

The cupcake image was cut out of sunset cardstock at 2 1/2" and wrapped with black & white ribbon finished with some dabs of silver glitter glitz gel. The stars were also cut from our "bug" friend at 1".

Lots of fun making this card and super easy to do.

Of course, I had lots of help from my Cricut (love that bug!) and the new “Art Philosophy” cartridge exclusive to CTMH.  Having this great cartridge makes my job big fun and super easy!!!!  It even helps me make the cuts so I can create these beautiful paper flowers:

Pillow Boxes & Paper Flowers

Love my Cricut!!!!  I have to say, I didn’t play all too much with the Cricut until CTMH came out with their exclusive cartridge…now I can’t stop!  I cannot believe what I have been able to create in just minutes thanks to this bug…

Here is a pillow box I made today in five minutes…yep, you heard me right.  Take a look…..

Cricut projects 016 

I used less than a sheet of B&T paper from the CTMH “Elemental” paper pack, dark chocolate and colonial white striped ribbon, opaque adhesive gems, one of the beautiful embellishments from the Pewter Mini-Medley pack, and a stamped image from one of the  Cricut cartridge coordinating stamp sets called “Celebration”. 

The paper flowers are super simple to make and look so pretty when complete.

Let me know if you are interested in learning how to make your very own pillow box….classes will be scheduled soon so keep your eye out on the list of workshops that are upcoming!
